Are you ready to join the one million people using Paysend?

There are now more than 270m people worldwide sending an estimated $689bn, this year, home to another country. This is almost ten times as much as it was in 1990, based on World Bank figures.

But these aren’t just numbers. They are people. Part of a growing number of people who are living a life without borders.

They are Filipino nurses working in London and sending money home to pay for the education of their nieces and nephews.

They are the Canadian student, coming to study in London who has a difficult time setting up a native bank account.

They are the Australian living overseas who needs to repay a debt to a friend in Ireland.

These are illustrations of just some of the one million people that are now using Paysend to transfer money across more than 70 countries around the world.

On the face of it, they have little in common. But they are all people who are increasingly living their lives across borders.

They often work in one country but have family commitments in another. Or they are living away from home, or they simply travel more than most.

And now a million of them use Paysend to support their lifestyles and their ambitions.

With fixed, transparent fees, we ensure that more of our customers’ money is enjoyed by those they care about.

And our growth tells us that our customers like what we’re doing:

• In the last month alone, more than 100,000 new users or 3,000 every day have used Paysend for the first time

• Some of the most popular destinations for sending money from Europe are China, India, Philippines, Poland, Nigeria and Ukraine

We’re delighted with our growth to date but we’re keeping our foot on the gas.

We want to better support the millions of people who want to help their families back home, or build lives in new places, or see more of life beyond their borders.

We’re launching new services. We plan to make paying, holding and sending money globally even easier and cheaper for everyone.

You can join the revolution on our website or our app available on the App Store or on Google Play.

Plus, your first transfer is free this month with offer code MILLION.

And to thank our customers, we’re giving away $1,000,000 in free transfers. The first 650,000 transfers in September will receive a code for a free transfer in October by email.
